HeretEK-An EK Vulture build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Loop cut and in,need to pull them all and bench polish the tubing,airbrush with a red candy finish and tweak a couple of the lines for perfect alignment before final fitting.
Nice and clean,simple and gives a perfect view of the hardware inside.Very happy with the layout!

And yes,I lost one of the o-rings for the 290x block,this is why the cover for the VRM bridge is off....

Now the perfectionist comes out in me,I cant stand hardlines that are not in line with points of reference,they have to be bang on! The rear tube from the GPU needs about 3mm lopped off the end where it meets the reservoir to bring it in line.

Sleeve is on its way too!

All in all a very clean loop indeed!

And an hour on the bench polisher later.....

CPU block has been rotated for the correct flow path and the tube has had all the cutting back and tweaking done. I wont need to do any more polishing because of the candy coat,if this was a full bore polish job then I would still be at it till the small hours.....

Well,the candy coating of the tube went to pot,it looked so bad....the thinners rag was got out immediately and it was removed.....

You know that cheap chrome plated plastic for kids toys? Yeah..just like that. So..polished copper it is.

Sleeving this weekend and I cant wait to take finished pics of it.!

In the meantime...

And done...just in time for the deadline. All wired and working,need to black vinyl the HDD tho and generally tidy up and dust out....

Final pics tomorrow!

In the meantime...have some fresh from the bench shots!

Many thanks to EK for giving me this chassis to work with,Crucial UK for providing the DDR4 kit and BeQuiet for the PSU.

Now for some fine weather for outdoor pics!

That looks really nice.

I'm debating copper tubing my build, but it might be a little to compact

The competition may be over but the modding never stops...

Some final touches and the lighting,outdoor shots tomorrow!

Temps are good,Stock is 48c max on the CPU on OCCT and the GPU's dont go past 44c, not bad for a parallel full loop. Ambient is 24c

What is good is that the GPU temps dont have a knock on effect on the CPU other than equilibrium changes.

dang, did you manage to get that horizontal reservoir all the way full? that's impressive


Pro Tip: don't use flash when taking pictures of your build; use a longer exposure instead. Prop up your camera with something (preferably a tripod) if necessary.

if you use retarded/autistic/etc to mean stupid please gtfo

Photo for the Corsair link im using.

I have finished a quick 4.3@1.25v OC for a rough idea of what this chip will be like and to get an idea of the cooling potential of the setup,I had some initial concerns about flow rate and the low rad space.
That said,I am getting half decent results,nothing HWBot but I wasnt expecting that due to the much reduced flow to the CPU block.
Stress testing was done via x264 initially,it gives a good baseline before proceeding with more...athletic ....testing.

Ambient: 20c
58c on the hottest core,averages of around 49c

20 passes of that and we moved on to OCCT,not Linpack or P95 as I dont need that kind of furnace testing.

Temps went up but not terribly tho,hitting 74c on the hottest core,66 being the average.

For a fully parallel setup and restricted rad space,this is pretty good! I can see another D5 or dual 10w DDC going in  along with a EK XE 360 for good measure.

Ok,got my 24/7 OC finished,not a screamer but more than enough for the hot summer ambients and limited rad space.

Just settling in for some Elite:Dangerous...

And core temps from a 1h OCCT run.

Amazingly,the Corsair Link has caused no problems.....doesnt give full control over speeds but knowing what Corsair specs their fans with PWM wise,im not surprised.

Lots of BIOS and in OS tinkering to get the USB working as it should tho.
